I can't seem to find a decent set of strings for my 7. all these 56's on the low end! WTF?! There's a couple with a 60, but i think i want a 62 or 64. I'm a pretty heavy picker, and i tune down a bit... usually a 1/2 step and a drop on the B-string because i dSjuck :P
what are you guys running and from where? I checked the usual suspects and basically i don't want to buy any of these.
is custom the way to go?
I went custom on my strat and my Rhoads. I'm a heavy picker too but I was just tired of using D'addario's poorly balanced sets. I set the gauges up to get progressively more tension so I could bend on the treble strings and really hammer on the bass strings. I'm really happy with it so far, the only downside was it cost a lot more than buying full sets.
